Fun Reggae guitar lesson for players of varying levels. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to navigate through a basic 1.4.5 progression in Gmaj, and then how to apply percussive rakes, short staccato strums, and bassnotes for a nice reggae feel for solo acoustic guitar.

One of the defining characteristics of reggae guitar is the emphasis of the 2nd and 4th beats. In this lesson we will look at a solo-acoustic rhythm that drops bassnotes, and percussive raking on beats 1&3, and short-staccato strums accenting beats 2&4. Strip it down for a full band arrangement, or go all in for a solo-performance. Lets get started!
